I have renounced my father's estate. Am I obliged to participate in the payment of his funeral?

When the assets of the estate are not sufficient to pay the funeral expenses, these are assimilated to a food debt. Thus, even if in the father's debt (children, spouses, sons-in-law and daughters-in-law) have renounced the inheritance , they are obliged to pay funeral expenses.
